What is Tea?
All tea comes from same plant — Camellia Sinensis. How the leaves are processed and their levels of contact with oxygen determine the resulting types of tea and the polyphenol content. During oxidation, tea leaves undergo natural chemical reactions that result in distinctive color and taste characteristics. This oxidation process reduces the polyphenol content and other nutrients in the tea.
